Skinny Frozen Peppermint Hot Cocoa
Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 mins
 1-2 Heaping Tbs Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I used my rich fabulous Scharffen Berger)
 A few drops Peppermint Extract
 Milk Choice: A splash of your favorite milk. I like Unsweetened Vanilla Soymilk. You can do dairy-based milk, Almond Milk, Rice Milk, Light Coconut Milk. Whatever you choose should work well. This splash will give a hint of milky flavor and a nice mouthfeel.
 Sweetener Choice: The best way to keep your frozen drink Skinny is to use all natural Stevia. I love my Stevia powder or English Toffee Sweetleaf stevia drops. Stevia has no calories and rates 0% on the glycemic index. You can also use a bit of honey, agave, maple syrup or raw sugar. If you are using pre-sweetened cocoa powder you probably won't need any extra sweetener.
 Cold Water, roughly 6 oz (You might want less, you need to gauge how well everything is blending. You don’t want ice chunks.)
 Ice, about 6 oz

Add cocoa, splash of milk, peppermint extract, sweetener, ice and water to blender. Blend until all is combined and slushy. Done. Treat is made. Add any toppings
